As a therapist for both adults & adolescents I understand the impact of today's ever changing world can have on us at any age. As your therapist I will offer you the opportunity to talk through your worries and feel more emotionally tolerant for the future ahead; whichever path you choose to take. I can help you build your self-esteem and promote confidence in your own ability; using the tools you already have and new ones you'll develop.

Adults aged 18+

Are you finding your work/ life balance challenging? Feeling emotionally worn out and exhausted? Struggling with anxiety, depression or anger? In need of help but have no clue where to start?

These are common questions I find my clients ask themselves and I am here to work with you to find the answers. Anxiety, anger, depression & shame are words we're hearing more frequently in our society but have we also become intolerant to experiencing them? I offer you an opportunity to talk through your issues in an emotionally healthy way, aiming for lasting emotional change.

People are individual and unique and this difference is celebrated in my therapy room. I don't offer a "one size fits all" approach and will work with you as an individual to create a truly personal therapy experience that can help you to move forward.

​Prior to a first session I offer a complimentary 15 minute phone call so we can decide how best I can work with you on your therapy journey. All emails, calls and sessions remain strictly confidential.

Adolescents aged 11-18

Adolescence is a really important time of our lives where lots of change happens. It's easier than ever to not communicate through face to face contact so we're losing our ability to connect with each other.

There's so much pressure on young people today - to fit in, to do well in exams and to make long term decisions on their future; it's hard to know where to begin. In my work with adolescents I explore this journey with them to help them to understand their different emotions and how to communicate how they feel, however, it doesn't stop there. In my experience it's far more beneficial to work with the primary caregivers as well as young people to ensure the work carries on outside of the therapy room.

If you're calling on behalf of a young person who is over the age of 16 please note I'll also ask to have a brief chat with them in order to gain their consent to attend therapy.

I have complimentary fact sheets for parents/ guardians of clients aged under 18 in order to help clarify how the therapy process will work and the role of the parent/ guardian.

Green Chair Counselling Service

In addition to seeing clients myself, I've also launched a new service in St Albans called Green Chair Counselling Service. Whether you see myself directly, or someone in the team, you'll be working with a highly qualified and experienced therapist to give you the support you need.
